National Lottery winners over the moon in June
June is the month Wimbledon gets underway and The National Lottery court, or rather, caught the mood by serving up some massive wins.
A total of 19 lucky players became National Lottery millionaires in June, 2022.
Lotto smashed it out of the court with a trio of massive jackpot wins. One lucky player was lobbed a £20Million prize by the 4th June 2022 Lotto draw. The game also volleyed prizes worth £7.4Million and £3.9Million in the direction of two more lucky winners.
In total, Lotto served up 9 millionaires in June.
You’d think it would be hard to match Lotto’s ‘centre court’ performance, but EuroMillions rose to the occasion. The 10th June 2022 draw paid a staggering £54.9Million jackpot to a UK player who must have ‘jumped the net’ with joy.
EuroMillions made a total of 9 millionaires in June and we met Grimsby couple Calum Forrington and his wife, Kayleigh, who scooped £1Million on the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw.
Calum, 37, said, “I’d played the EuroMillions on the Friday, choosing to play as a one-off with my own ticket. It wasn’t until the following morning when I was eating my cereal before work that I remembered to check my online account. I was in complete shock when I scrolled down and saw my EuroMillions ticket was a winner... we both completely freaked out and I had to go outside to get some air!

Another player who felt like an ace in June is Whitley Bay’s Sam Gray. The 46-year-old won an amazing £10,000 every month for a year on The National Lottery Set For Life game.
Sam is a regular National Lottery player, but as a fan of Lucky Dip tickets she rarely selected her own numbers. She took a different approach to the Set For Life draw on 26th May 2022, using a set of numbers she had chosen and saved to her National Lottery online account 2 years ago, but rarely used.

Thunderball was hitting cash all over the court in June with 5 lucky players winning top prizes of £500,000 each.
Meanwhile, the Instant Win Game wins came faster than the volleys in a doubles match. A total of 8 players won prizes of £50,000 or more with Mega Cashword Purple paying out a £500,000 prize, Triple Cashword Yellow paying out 4 £300,000 prizes and Monopoly Gold Classic paying out 2 £100,000 prizes. Last, but not least, Jackpot Blue paid out a £100,000 prize to one lucky player.
June was also a busy month for National Lottery Scratchcards. A total of 5 players won big prizes with 1 scratching off a £1Million prize. Game, set and match!
